"Used exactly as specified" is fine for flat colors. It doesn't cope with the following:

- transparency
- filters
- compositing with other colors

which all need to convert the supplied parameters to an actual measured color, in Lab or XYZ or sRGB or some other color space. The problem with device-cmyk is that it is a recipe, not a color specification.
